This 3D Dome pendant is made of fine silver (.999) and patinated in concentric dark and light stripes - as  dark and light periods in life, and bears a sentence from the legend about King Solomon - "This too shall pass".

This sentence reminds you that when you have a bad day, it will pass. And when you have a good day - seize the moment, enjoy it, appreciate it - be aware it would not last forever. The phrase "This too shall pass" and the associated ring story were made popular by Abraham Lincoln in his 'Address Before the Wisconsin State Agricultural Society, Milwaukee, Wisconsin' on September 30, 1859: It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: And this, too, shall pass away." How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!" (Wikipedia)

Three Hebrew letters gimel, zayin, yud, which began the words "Gam zeh ya'avor" -- "This too shall pass" are engraved on the inner circle. 
Comes complete with black leather or rubber cord.
